AlgeCenter Danmark is a collaboration between four instututions: Aarhus University, Danish Technological Institute, Copenhagen University and the Kattegatcentre. The consortium formed in 2011 under which a number of research projects operate. The purpose of AlgeCenter Danmark is to find out how algae can be used as a new resource in a world where traditional resources are under pressure. A number of research projects serve to find out how algae can be used for sustainable energy, food, medicine and food ingredients.
The objective of AlgeCenter Danmark is to explore the potential of producing biogas from algae and the use of residues as fertilizer for organic crop production. An important tool in order to move forward is the plant at Grenaa Harbour in Denmark, where algae can be grown and research carried out. Read more about the plant here
